    Pros

    Some smart people and good information sharing online tools are decent to work with. The culture is a competitive one.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of changes in the staffing in the last 2 years, and the culture has changed quite a bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The need to have more education programs for partners is essential. More online tools and resources should be made available to partners to empower them with ability to create sales and opportunities. The product feature velocity needs to be improved in areas where there is plenty of catchup needed.

    I worked at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, company usually pays a competitive salary
    Good balance work/family

    Cons

    too focused on selling boxes
    not clear strategy in the short, medium and long term. For example, the new CEO was replaced after few months and it is not clear how to fulfill the internal vision to the future.

    very little room to move within the organisation

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits - the company is really set up well to look after employees. The HR and Talent Matters process is really good.

    Cons

    Ugly culture in the wake of the changes - there is not enough good leadership, other than the CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a team means more than organising drinks - it's about making sure that everyone is contributing and playing to their strengths and being honest with people if they aren't.

    Pros

    Good people, good management, its'a a company that 's big enough to engage the large opportunities and small enough to care about the outcome.

    Cons

    Product range is still somewhat limited. Market penetration is getting better but needs work. Marketing doens't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on marketing - for every dollar you put in you'll get back three,... That's how CISCO does it.

    Excellent salary

    Cons

    Company struggles at times to scale, still suffers at times from small-company-overload issues
    Tough to advance, supported in principle but very tough to get into a role that you aren't already a perfect (i.e. already fully qualified) fit for
